“the good and otherwise”
Reviewed 26 February 2005

For $80, including city/state taxes, this single is a bargain. Pleasant hotel staff and complimentary breakfast on a one week visit in February 2005.
Room was above average with kingsize bed, recliner, table with two chairs and coffee maker. Large parking area for the 3-story motel.
Otherwise, close to a noisy freeway - ask for a quieter room facing the back
parking lot. Coin laundry was small (on 3rd floor) and not very clean. Same with the corridors in the buildings. No restaurant within walking distance although it appears one will open soon, next door. No complimentary morning newspaper, but paper-racks outside lobby area - bring quarters.
Close to a large shopping mall that has adjacent Denny's and IHOP restaurants. Plan on driving everywhere - watchout for the frontage road facing the motel - it's one-way.

I began reading descriptions here, and I also now, go by the Triple A Book. I chose this hotel due to it's popularity here, and it's good report in the Triple A book. Infact, I will never again select a hotel without reading in Triple A, then, here.
I stayed in this hotel on July 11th, on our way down to South Padre. I had my 13 year old son with me. I found the front desk, the cleaning staff, and the hotel staff in general, very polite, and helpful. They must enjoy their jobs, and you can tell. The room was perfect. It had two double beds, perectly made, with the usual: hair drier, iron, ironing board, t.v. with internet acces. It had a very big table, with two large chairs. The bathroom was spacious.
When we got up in the morning, it had continental breakfast. To my son's delight, it had a self made waffle maker, where the hotel staff had made the waffle mix, and you pour the mix into the maker yourself. The breakfast was huge.
It was fun. I'll never forget the waffle maker.
The hotel is kind of accross the street from Bubba's Ice House, who has very good food.
The hotel has a clean pool, surrounded by palm trees. The hotel is about 5 miles from the bay, and the staff gave me a detailed map of Corpus Christi, and also gave me excellent instructions about intersections with road construction, and also told me how to go to Padre Island.
If I need to stay in Corpus Christi again, I'd choose this hotel.

We stayed there in September '03 and was very pleased with the hotel.
Rooms were nice and clean, and the staff was friendly and helpful.
Breakfast was good- waffles, pastries and fruit. Our only complaint was the mosquitos near the pool, and the hotel can't do a whole lot about that!

Stayed at the LaQuinta over parent's weekend. Couldn't have asked for a better value. $54.00 for a king N/S room; fresh, hot waffles for breakfast; forgot toothbrushes so they gave us two; and the most hospitable front desk I have seen.
